Any new avatars planned for this year?~~brenda_bbm
Yessiree! Keep an eye out ;)
Hi. The new handheld plushie awarded by voting for every Neopies category on the day of release is adorable! :) However, it's currently spelled as "Elsworth" Handheld Plushie, when it should be "Ellsworth." Please send to Donny. Thank you!~~_brainchild_
Oops you're totally right, patching that up for ya.
I noticed that the Deceptive Greeting Card is actually edible, and can be eaten by your pets. Is it supposed to be like that, since it's marked as a gift?~~jdb1984
Well, I guess that's what makes it deceptive right? Eat it or gift it, the choice is up to you...
Hi TNT! I would like to see more makeup themed items, is it possible to get a makeup themed mystery capsule? I got a few ideas for it: Makeup Store Background, Handheld Lipstick and a Makeup Table.~~greyfever
Wow, I love makeup too honestly, not sure about a capsule, but that background sounds amazing I will pass that idea onto the team! And we should have some new makeup items coming out within the next month or so.
I heard a rumor that,since flash is dying,ALL flash supported games will be deleted from existence in Neopia. Is it true??~~clovertheperidot
Definitely not, we are currently converting batches of games at a time, it is a long process but we are definitely working on it.
Hi there, I am just wondering if runner-ups for this most recent Random Contest should only expect to hear back when the final prizes have been awarded? Due to the nature of the runner-up tier it leaves a lot of us hanging in suspense. :(~~freehanded
Very soon so sorry for the delay you all had some pretty awesome winning entries to getting them all created has taken us some time so we are hoping to get those prizes out to you all very soon.
I bought a Zombie JubJub Morphing Potion. The issue is that it won't work because it hasn't been activated in your end. If you check the rainbow pool it doesn't exist. Can you hit the magic button to work it? One of my pets keep asking me to write this.~~blackdragonwings
Wow, you are completely correct that was a little silly of them to do it that way...guess we will need to create a Jubjub Zombie!
Hi! It's been a few days since Jhudora Day, but the new items announced haven't been activated! Could you please look into that? Thanks!~~spakefairy
Donny is on it and putting them in stores now.
Do comics submitted to the NT have to be humourous one-offs? Or can someone submit a series with a plot, more like a graphic novel style?~~aietradaea
Yes of course we love comic series! The more the merrier!
Hiya! It seems the new Tonu and Mynci clothes released this week have an est. value of 0, and so they are not restocking :( can this be fixed?
You are totally right, Donny is on it adding price tags as we speak!
Hey there! Recently I've seen a lot of criticism of the update both on the website and off, but I really have to say that you're all doing a great job. I love the art updates and new small features like the resubmit button on the Shop Wizard, and the Healing Springs being one page instead of two. I'm really glad to see this website I've loved for so long become something greater as flash has ended. Thank you all!! - ging_bob
Before silencing was a punishment, people who said something offensive would have their account frozen. Would you consider giving back accounts which were frozen before silences were a punishment on the condition that they be perma-silenced? (Please leave my username out if this gets answered) ~~Anonymous
Hello, this is already being done in some situations, however there are some situations where the offense might have been a chat violation, but it would still require the account to be frozen. So sadly, not all accounts frozen for chat related violations would be eligible to be unfrozen in exchange for a permanent silence.
Hi TNT! With changing the allowed topics on the boards, I wondered if it's allowed to say GLS (like good luck selling) again? btw thanks for destroying my innocent little gls bubble before.. ~~damiria
You have always been able to say GLS, this has never been a rule, unless you are only saying GLS with no other contribution to the conversation and are advertising for the BC or CC entry. Otherwise, have fun wishing people luck with their sales. :)
Hello, TNT. Recently it came to my attention that apparently pets named after medical terminology are considered inappropriate and are not allowed on the site. Yet I have seen a good number of pets, both UC and non, named after all sorts of medical and anatomical terms. Does that mean there are only certain medical terms, say, copyrighted prescription names or potentially controversial disease names, that are disallowed, while more general names like medical procedures or names referring to certain parts of the body are more accepted? Or is it a blanket 'no' for any pet named after anything medical, save for grandfathered pets? ~~ezel68
No, there are no exceptions to this, if there are some pets out there which were missed in the filters you are welcome to report them to be checked however if they were created before the cutoff date in 2007 then they would be considered grandfathered.
Hello TNT! Like many others, I was quite happy when you announced the site was now friendly toward the LGBTQ+ community. Today I decided on a pet name I wanted that included the word "gay" and attempted to create him on a side account. Imagine my surprise when I was unable to create this pet! After a bit more research, I found out this wasn't just a pet problem. Petpages, for example, cannot include the word gay. Can you please, please adjust the filters for us? ~~whiffet
Hi, Sorry this is still being worked on. Even though this is allowed, the filters are being extremely stubborn and not allowing us to remove that specific word. Hopefully, we will be able to get this corrected soon.
I have been fighting cancer for the last three years but never mentioned it on the boards as I figured it might not be something people want to hear about when they are trying to play a game to get away from real life issues. So my question is, if someone is ill in real life, how much if anything is someone allowed to say on Neopets boards or Neomails to explain why you might not be on for a while to friends who play Neopets? Also there is covid, flu, colds, etc., going around. My feeling is its best to not bring these up on Neopets since its a game to get away from real life problems, but I wondered if Neopets has an official stance on mentioning illness on Neopets. If you answer please leave my name out and feel free to edit out anything you don't want to include.
Hi, You are right, it's best to avoid all discussion of real world health issues, if you happen to mention you are sick that's fine but avoid going into details about the sickness or the treatments so Neopets is a place to escape real life.
The flash apocalypse seems to have ignored me as my flash player is still working without any issues. My desktop is still using Windows XP. Is it okay for me to continue using my flash player to play neopets games ? ~~neo__rainbow I want to know if it alright to use on classic neopets flash games thru the use of third-party flash emulators. If so, if it also safe to submit scores thru those third-party flash emulators which is also used on other flash based sites officially or this might result in account freeze? I know the staff knows what emulator I am referring to is rhyme with waffles. ~jomarcenter2012

We definitely don't recommend it anymore, as Flash support has generally been continued even if there are workarounds. ~~gutterfoot
Officially, we don’t recommend using Flash emulators to play the old games, specifically because many of them create security vulnerabilities that we can’t protect you against, and some will break the visual layout of the beta site. That said, you won’t be punished or frozen for submitting scores with a Flash workaround! (Unless any additional tampering with score manipulation is being used) ~~pinkslorg
If you have your account gender set to "Other", Kelp will still use male pronowns. Can you get that fixed? ~jdb1984
Thanks for the heads up! We updated that for the bank, and we'll be sure to do so for Kelp once we convert it. ~van Doodle
Hi TNT! I started playing more on mobile, and I've found that it's rather irritating taking NP out of my shop till, because the overall viewing area is very small, and the amount is displayed to the left of the till. So I have to zoom in, scroll left, read the amount, then scroll right to enter how much I want to withdraw. Can you make a temporary fix by centering the amount so it appears over the till? If not, is this at least something you're looking into fixing? (Waiting on the "Withdraw All" option, too!) Thanks! ~lil_jen_aside
Thanks for the heads up! We updated that for the bank, and we'll be sure to do so for Kelp once we convert it. ~van Doodle
How often does TNT look at the topics on the Ideas & Suggestions board? There are quite a few great suggestions there that I would love to hear staff's input on, such as the potential for a NC-based trading post and doing a week-long More for Less event to send off the flash games. Thanks! ~belindaword
Some of us check the boards on a near-daily basis, and we love seeing your suggestions! Unfortunately, we can't do even all of the best suggestions all the time. ~van Doodle
Help! My Eyries seems to have gotten hit by a shrinking ray! They look much smaller than other pet species on the Beta home page. Is there a way to unshrink and return them to their previous glory? (And thank you for your continual hard work on the Beta conversion.) ~elbereth_elentari
The relative sizes of pets on the homepage is based on how they appear in customization. Believe it or not, Eyrie's really are smaller than Draiks based on that benchmark. Don't even get me started on canonical heights, things get pretty crazy! ~van Doodle
Hi TNT! Do you have any plans to make a Valentine's Day themed layout in the new mobile friendly style? I haven't heard of one already existing, and it's my favorite site theme. ~~erenjg
It's out now! Go check it out. c: Hope you like it! ~~gutterfoot
Hi TNT! It is with a heavy heart I humbly request a new feature during this revamp... I think I am one among many who would like to see some more security or warning for people who are mass discarding or donating items on the Quick Stock page. Two options could be: adding a PIN for discarding/donating, and also simply adding a secondary warning message. It is a bit too easy to mindlessly ignore the warning, and suddenly your items are just, in the void! Thanks for your consideration and all you do. ~~freehanded
I think that's an excellent call. Since we already used pins in the bank and in pet trades, I don't see why we couldn't add it to quick stock as an option. ~~gutterfoot
Hi TNT. I was wondering if it would be possible to make stats earned when completing kitchen quests go to your active pet, just like faerie quests do? Thanks! ~~ruuff
Great suggestion! We're actually working on Kitchen Quest right now, so I'll tell the team to take a look. ~~gutterfoot
Hi! Thank you for the recent changes in support of your LGBTQIA+ users. I'm not sure if this has been considered yet, but it would be great for us to (optionally) be able to display pronouns on the neoboards + our ULs in addition to our gender. ~~aurorium
Completely agree, that would be great! I'll talk to the team about adding it to the Neoboards once we do our second pass on them. As for ULs, it may be a little bit before we get them on our schedule but I'll make sure it's discussed there as well! ~~gutterfoot
Hello! I saw someone on the board talking about how the limit for the closet (650) would now be enforced. I regularly buy new clothing items, and I'm not really sure I'll be able to juggle putting in what I want and taking out what I'm not currently needing. It also seems counter intuitive to have this limit when new items are coming out every day. Can the limit please be taken away, I've never had issues with it before. ~~brynchilla
The closet limit isn't being enforced, but we did post a reminder that it has always existed. Due to the loading times with the new customization app, it was recommended that users who are having issues try trimming down their closets. ~~gutterfoot
Hello. I was wondering whether we will have events like Altador Cup or Daily Dare this year, given the conversion. ~~catsncrows
Altador Cup is definitely happening this year. As mentioned above, we've had the games is the process of conversion for a while now and are hoping to get them out earlier to test. As for Daily Dare, we are hoping to have a good chunk of games added to the Games Room soon, so fingers crossed! ~~gutterfoot
Hi TNT! Will we have a chance to test the converted Altador Cup games before the matches start, or will any bugs be part of the fun this year? ~~i_love_latin
Fingers crossed the plan is to get them into the games room for users to test out before Altador Cup. Keep an eye out! ~~gutterfoot
Hi TNT! I appreciate all the work you've been putting into the new mobile-friendly site, it is obviously such a massive undertaking and you can't make everyone happy, but I hope we all get used to it as more of the site is finished! I do have one thing I'd like to request, though. On the main page, we can no longer see our pets' full customizations as many zones are missing. Having spent loads of my own money (and time!) on my extravagant NC customizations, it is quite a bummer to not see them in their full glory as I used to on the side of the page or in quick ref. Additionally, many of my pets have outfits on specifically to match the rest of the items that are missing and it looks very strange out of context with them all on the same backdrop! Would you please update this section so we can see all the awesome items we put on our pets? ~aurorium
You can see your pets full customization of your active pet in the side menu by clicking the thumbnail of your pet in the upper left corner, and for any of your pets by clicking on them on the homepage to bring up their pet card. We know that the animated versions aren't currently available in either of these views quite yet, but will be coming in a later release. Also, the quick ref page is still accessible at the moment. We're always considering further tweaks, and appreciate your feedback! ~van Doodle
I miss being able to see my fill neopet image on the side of all the pages! Seeing the little circle is just ... not doing it for me. Is there a way we can pin the left side bar to stay on all the pages so I can look at my beautiful pets (and see the clock) at all times? ~~moon_hates_you
We did recently update the header nav to include the clock if you're on a large enough device. As for pinning the profile menu permanently, it is something the team has discussed and is trying to find solutions for! ~~gutterfoot
